About Dive Alert PLUS v.2

Why use DiveAlert PLUS?

What would you do in a diving emergency if you needed to get the attention of someone else? Above or below the water's surface!

Traditionally, SCUBA divers have relied on whistles as their only audible surface signaling device. But, if a diver is disabled and can't blow into the whistle, the whistle makes no sound at all. Equally frustrating and dangerous, if a diver needs to attract the attention of someone who is too far away to hear the whistle, the whistle is of no help.

Or, what would you do if you wanted the attention of your dive buddy underwater, for whatever reason, and he was simply distracted and not paying attention to you at that very moment? Traditionally, you would be forced to swim up to him or her until you got their attention.

Instead, using the DiveAlert PLUS a diver on the surface can sound a horn blast that can be heard up to a mile away! Or, DiveAlert PLUS can signal a dive buddy underwater!

DiveAlert PLUS is a small and lightweight pneumatic signaling device that harnesses the power of compressed air in your scuba tank to produce a distinctive sound both above and below the surface. Using quick-connect/disconnect couplings, DiveAlert PLUS becomes an integrated part of the power inflator on your BCD.

DiveAlert PLUS does not require any modification of your other equipment, and it does not interfere in any way with the normal operation of your other equipment.

When you need to get someone's attention while on the surface, you simply squeeze DiveAlert PLUS and it diverts a small amount of air from your scuba tank to make a powerful and piercing sound. Or, when you are underwater and want to attract attention, squeeze DiveAlert PLUS and it diverts a small amount of air from your scuba tank to make a buzzing noise to alert your dive buddy.

Details on using DiveAlert PLUS

INSTALLATION - DiveAlert PLUS connects between the power inflator and the low-pressure hose by means of its quick-connect/disconnect hose fittings.

OPERATION - Once the tank is turned on and the DiveAlert PLUS connected, squeeze DiveAlert PLUS a little underwater for a subsurface signal or squeeze it a little harder on the surface for a loud surface signal blast.

Just make sure that before every dive you check that DiveAlert PLUS is installed correctly and functioning properly. Also be careful not to point DiveAlert PLUS toward yourself or toward anyone who is in close proximity to you when you activate the surface signal or loss of hearing could result.

MAINTENANCE - After each use, DiveAlert PLUS should be rinsed with fresh water. This is especially important after use in chlorinated swimming pools and in other water having corrosive substances. Additionally, it is highly recommended that you blow the water out of DiveAlert PLUS before storing. This can be done by pressurizing and activating both the surface and subsurface signaling elements. We recommend that you cup your hand over the surface signaling element to muffle the loud noise.

This is a great dive alert horn if you don't mind the bulkiness. In addition to it being bulky, the first time I unintentionally dropped the BCD while it was still attached, the plastic cracked in a corner. I was still able to use it after that, I just know that it has a little crack in the plastic, which makes me feel uncomfortable.
Further, when you come out of the water and need to use it, if all the water is not drained out of it, then it won't work properly.

So, here is my personal opinion: If your BCD uses a 1-inch diameter corrugated hose, replace the inflator with the Aquatec Inflator with integrated Horn. it will be cheaper, save space, and will work twice a good.

I think something like this should be required equipment for every diver, but having bought 2 of the v2's (I thought I just got a defective one the first time), they haven't gotten the combined underwater/surface signal with-one-button right on this new version yet. The underwater signal blows just air most of the time, and the horn takes time to clear itself before it works on the surface (once when I really needed to use it). I didn't mind toggling from Air to Water on the last one, so I would recommend buying one of those instead (if you can still find them) - it worked much better. I replaced my old once since the underwater horn seems to have worn out after a couple of years...

    Comments about Dive Alert PLUS v.2:

    I took this on my recent dive trip to Catalina Island in Southern California. I was excited to test it out with my dive buddy before using as a dive master this summer. Everything seemed to work well except that my buddy couldn't hear it. This might have been because it was cold water diving and we were wearing hoods. Hopefully it is heard easily in the warm water when the ears are not obstructed.

      Easy to use device for above water alerting or below water signaling. Slightly bulky, but does not interfere with use of alternative air supply or bcd inflator. Make sure you get the correct version for your alternate air supply. This model works with my Zeagle combination bcd inflator/ alternate air source.

          Every diver should have one. It's loud on the surface and easily attracts attention under water. Don't dive without one.
